This guy is getting worse. Who the hell sent him the originals so he could reproduce them?

Lately it's also crazy to see the amount of figures re-carded on repro cards with repro weapons that are coming on Ebay, whether they are called "reproductions", "custom" or "restoration"... It's also crazy to see the price people are paying for them Shocked One would think these are not worth more than what's the loose figure is worth, but there's clearly a market for that stuff now. What's worrying is 3D printers being more and more cheap, one of these days some of them will start producing completely fake figures.

At first I never saw the harm in his creations, but as time has gone on and I've seen how his boxes fade and discolour so now I see its a rip off, I still like to see other peoples custom work but replica packaging is a waste of time

We need up close photos of this crap spread far and wide for the community to see.
I'm sure i saw an eBay sales post a couple of years back advertising an expensive Palitoy MOC, which was actually a Toy Toni outing campaign, it was really good.

I heartily endorse the way the Toy Toni fakes should be outed so as not to deceive collectors into parting their hard earned money. Its a good thing I have our "Mr Palitoy" to consult before I even pull the trigger in eBay on any PALITOY TESB 45B carded figures, which I almost did for a certain protocol droid.

Agree about the Toy Tonis. I'm not a fan of these being sold even with full disclosure. Who knows what the buyer is going to do with them?

I own two myself and I'm still trying to work out a way to mark them as TTs without completely ruining the card.

Orme is a blight on the hobby. He has seen an opportunity, and is cashing in big time. Too bad it puts a ton of fakes into the market, which at some point are going to fool unsuspecting or uneducated collectors.

Toy Toni's are a whole other story. You don't want to destroy them because they are vintage items, but those are not original factory seals and that screws up a lot of people who think they're real.

I would personally only pay loose prices on either guy's products, then instantly rip the toys out of the packaging.
